The remarkable run of Victorian golfer, Sue Wooster, continued today when she reached the quarter-finals of the US Senior Amateur Championship in Anchorage in Alaska.
In June, Wooster, from the National Golf Club on the Mornington Peninsula, won the European Senior Women’s Championship to go with her many other Senior Amateur titles worldwide and she has now earned the right to play Idaho golfer, Terri Frohnmayer in tomorrow’s quarter-final.
60 year old Wooster qualified in 9th place in the 36 hole strokeplay on Monday and Frohnmayer six shots worse in 32nd position. Frohnmayer, though, was the 2011 US Senior Amateur Champion.
Wooster comfortably won her opening two match play encounters before taking on 8th qualifier Suzi Spotleson of Ohio today who she defeated in impressive fashion by a 5&4 margin.
Wooster has not trailed through three matches and did not lose a hole against Spotleson.
Wooster was runner-up in both the 2018 and 2019 U.S. Senior Women’s Amateurs and has made the match play stage in all nine U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur appearances.
In 2018, she won the Canadian Women’s Mid-Amateur, the Canadian Women’s Amateur, the Australian Senior Women’s Amateur and the North & South Senior Women’s Amateur.
